About this book

The new edition of this highly respected, beautifully illustrated book has been thoroughly updated with new chapters, new sections, updated diseases, new and expanded clinical techniques, numerous full-color illustrations, Hint/Tip boxes and clinical cases at the end of each chapter where appropriate. With over 25 years of clinical experience in avian medicine, the author has written Avian Medicine and Surgery in Practice as a quick reference for veterinarians in practice and as a study guide for undergraduate and post-graduate veterinary students.

Review of the first edition:

"The author aimed to summarise much of the available knowledge in avian medicine and surgery, which this book has successfully achieved, and I discovered new information in every chapter [...] well set out with many astute observations [...] chapters are extremely useful for any veterinarian, as they vividly describe the basics of avian medicine and how to apply them [...] many practical tips and scenarios [...] [images] are of high quality and are well labelled [...] a comprehensive and up to date list of formulary, references and biological values, which provide a much needed quick reference [...] a necessary addition to all avian veterinary libraries [...] extremely useful for all veterinarians in developing a practical approach to common pet and aviary bird medical and surgical problems."
